dc.description.abstractElvik says that the morn khur is a widespread instrument among all Mongolian groups. According to one legend, the first morn khur was made by a young man from his magical winged horse that he had received from his beloved woman. Like many musical instruments, morn khur disappeared in Kalmykia in the 20th century. The first musician to teach morn khur in modern Kalmykia was a Mongolian man called Sampilnorov Choijamts who taught it in the 1990s. Today another man from Xinjiang called Tavkin Namjil teaches the instrument at the musical college.
